It is a brand new 2018 Ilx we bought in October. Just driving it a few days we found the fuel gauge is not working. It always shows full tank. We brought it to Acura deal and was told it is a known issue with the fuel pump with many new 2018 Ilx.

The fuel gauge is not working, the car is reading as full the whole time. As my wife and I share the car, we always assume the other was re-filling it, until it died on her. Worst is that, they will not keep it for repair as they don't have the parts. They send you with this safety risk away telling you to re-fuel it every 200 miles.
